Visible Image Faerie Magic

Everyone knows I love a fairie, and this one from Visible Image is way up there with my favourite stamps. I just love her! 

For this project I was feeling vibrant colours so I chose a base piece of card that I had been playing with previously with the Time Tunnel stencil and distress inks as my backdrop. It just works so well to create a magical swirl don't you think? 

I got a bit carried away, so not too many process photos on this one, but I think it's fairly self explanatory. First I stamped the faerie, bubbles and stars and coloured the bubbles.  I stamped and embossed some of the detail stamps. 
 I also stamped her and the wings on a separate card and coloured.

Nuvo drops added dimension to the bubbles. 

Once dry I adhered the Fairie and her wings to the card and mat and layered to frame.

These are the Visible Image products I used

Art Rebel by Visible Image

     My three month stint as a guest designer for Visible Image came to an end in August, but I am delighted to be able to say that they have invited me to create as a member of the main DT. An offer like that I simply could not refuse as I have had the BEST time over the last few months using their amazing stamps and stencils. What an honour!

    So, here is the first project of my new term. I am really feeling vibrant colours at the moment and the brilliantly quirky Art Rebel just lent himself to some neons. He's so much fun don't you think?

    Here are my steps:

    I stamped the main image onto a mop up piece of card and used Amsterdam acrylic ink to paint the glasses. When that was dry I used a mask to stamp on top of them.

    I used Dylusions spray ink and Versafine Clair to create a background, along with Count Me In stencil. 

    Once dry, I stamped and coloured areas with Posca pens.

    I used acrylic ink on card to make mounts for the focal image, and stamped out the sentiment from The World Needs Art set to finish.

    Thanks for popping by. I'll be back with more projects soon.
